We stayed 8 nights and were given a free upgrade to a king suite. What a room! The mattress was AMAZING, and I am pretty fussy with that and suffer back pain, but this was like heaven! The room was a good size with separate lounge area, was light and airy and well appointed. The shower head was pretty abysmal... More

Perfect location for a holiday in San Francisco. Close to great shopping with Macy's and the Westfield shopping centre close by. Cable car stop on the Union Square corner. The Handlery's room where of good size and very clean. The staff went out of their way to help wherever they could. I would definitely stay at the Handlery again on... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is in a brilliant location, the room was very clean, bed very comfortable and surprising quiet despite the air conditioning. We were in the older part of the hotel and loved the old fashioned decor of our room. The dining room was interesting, not only used by hotel guests but open to... More

We found we had to upgrade from a standard room as the double beds were just too small and we are by no means large! They were almost king single size! We also had a car and parking was pricy approx. $50 per day. Overall ok, but would not return due to price. Oh and the concierge was great, very... More

We overnights in San Francisco and stayed at the Handlery. It is a large hotel, extremely well located very near to Union Square, Powell St and the Powell St Station. we caught the BART in from the airport which is quick and cheap for a return ticket. The hotel has a great breakfast included in the price but unfortunately we... More

Great location. Nicely furnished room, including mini-fridge. If you are sensitive to city noise, you may want to request one overlooking the pool area, or rooms closer to Mason Street. I was on the 2nd floor overlooking Geary street. I was able to hear a lot of city noise until about 2am or so. The parking lot is convenient and... More

We had a fabulous stay here. Tom the Bellman was friendly and helpful on arrival with our bags. All the women on the Reception desk could smile a little as they were extremely cold and it was like asking a question was putting them out even when checking in. The included breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect. Close... More
